Patriots release cornerback Starks

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (Feb. 26, 2006) -- The New England Patriots released veteran cornerback Duane Starks after his lone season ended in injury.

Starks was placed on injured reserve Nov. 10 because of a shoulder injury. He was released on Feb. 25.

The Patriots acquired the 31-year-old Starks in an offseason trade with Arizona. He intercepted 25 passes in his first seven seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and Cardinals, but had no interceptions in seven games with the Patriots.

New England had envisioned Starks as a replacement for Ty Law, who left the Patriots after the 2004 season. Baltimore drafted Starks in the first round, 10th overall, of the 1998 draft.
